Jealously IS NOT Flattering

While re-reading one of my favorite books,  (The Shack), this phrase called out to be addressed ;  “Trust is the fruit of a healthy relationship in which you recognize that you are loved.  The Shack. William P. Young
I wanted to address jealousy in relationships, especially if you are the type of person who thinks a little jealousy is flattering.  I suggest that you recognize it may also be a red flag for trouble to come in the future of your relationship.  
The fact is that most relationships which lack trust are full of turmoil, therefor the relationship usually doesn’t survive.   In contrast to a healthy relationship in which you believe that the two of you belong together and can weather any storm.
If jealousy is your struggle,  I pray that you would Ask God today to help you to put your insecurities aside and allow your trust, and love to shine bright, in order to over shadow your insecurities, in return this should strengthen your relationship.
James  3:16 (ESV) “For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice”
